in some states trying to get the message for him. bill clinton is continues with the florida event. president obama probably made the right call to come back. it wouldn't look good if he continued with that event down in florida if people are pounded by rain. all attention will be on this storm for a while, especially on the east coast, so he has a chance to get out there and be in front of the cam ras. we don't want to talk aboutfall politics in a natural disaster, but it will give him a chance to respond and look presidential. >> mitt romney had to cancel three events in virginia. the latest poll out of the state. he's closing the gap, although the president still has a four-point lead. how do you proceed if you're mitt romney? he doesn't have an official role, so is whatever he does open to criticism, or is it -- do you even morph through a political lens? where does mitt romney play through all of this. >> he can campaign in states not adversely affected by the storm. he can stay in ohio. i don't think there was any downside to spend more time in ohio and put in homilies in the
by the name of mitt romney vote -- they said that bill clinton's plan would hurt the economy and kill jobs. does that sound familiar? that's what they said. it turns out their math was just as bad back then as it is now. because -- because by the end of bill clinton's second term, america had created 23 million new jobs and a incomes were up and poverty was down, and our deficit had turned into a surplus. so wisconsin, we know what ideas work. we know our ideas work. and we know that their ideas don't work. we know it. and the reason we know it is we just tried it a few years ago. after bill clinton was out of office, they tried their ideas. we tried giving big tax cuts to the wealthiest americans. we tried giving insurance companies and wall street a free rein to do whatever they play. what we got is falling incomes, record deficits, slowest job growth in 50 years and an economic crisis that we're still cleaning our way out of. so -- so we know what works and we know what doesn't. and governor romney now is a very talented salesman. so in this campaign, he is trying as hard as he can to r
president bill clinton, part of what has made fema so effective is the ability to have the resources in the bank, to have the resources, to get those resources ahead of the storm. because part of the problem is once the storm hits and you're trying to move resources in then you're behind the 8 ball. part of ryan budget, frankly, if we believe that's the approach romney would take says, no, no, you have to come back to us after a storm hits and get the resources you need. that's inefficient and we know that's inefficient. >> of course, we'll get the conversation of the off sets. >> of course. >> that means we have to take -- >> middle class americans. as you've been pointing out, all of a sudden he's nice to first responders when he wasn't so hot on them when we had real labor issues, was he? >> not at all. karen finney, great to have you on "the ed show." thanks so much. remember to answer tonight's question at the bottom of the screen. share your thoughts on twitter @edshow and on facebook. >>> coming up, a down and dirty ad from the romney campaign in florida because it's getting d

canceling plans to attend a rally in florida with bill clinton and instead headed back to the white house to monitor the storm from the situation room. he canceled an event in green bay, wisconsin scheduled for tomorrow. >> the last thing the president and i want to do is campaign and get in the way of anything. the most important thing is people's safety and health and property being saved here. >> the former president, the unofficial secretary of explaining stuff, took to the stage in the sunshine state solo. republican mitt romney will campaign today out of the storm's path in the battleground state of ohio yesterday offering these words for those in sandy's way. >> i think that right now some people in the country are a little nervous about a storm about to hit the coast, and our thoughts and prayers are with the people that find themselves in harm's way. >> what remains to be seen is how this october surprise will impact an election that is now just eight days away with early voting already under way. we want to get straight to the latest update, and for that nbc news meteorologist d
, clearly intended as a rebuttal to the paper's endorsement of mitt romney. bill clinton will be the way he was in 1996 when running for his own re-election trying to get as many campaign stops in as possible. with the president sidelined it's bigger than it was before. >> hillary clinton in bosnia today, on a trip to algeria yesterday, bosnia today, talking about how much she thinks about new york and sort of this wonderful irony all around. of course as the former senator from new york, she was pointing out her heart is there with the victims. >> the level of -- even the 2008 campaign, the idea at the end of the 2008 primary campaign you would say bill clinton is barack obama's most important surrogate and may get him over the line in some of these places you would be laughed at. now there's no question he's his most important surrogate. >> politics is completely unpredictable. chris cizilla, mark halperin, thank you so much. >> thanks arrange dre ya. >> more than a half million people in the dark in connecticut senator bloomen thal joins us. >> planes, trains, automobiles how long until
. in the barrio world, barack obama's policies were better. bill clinton in minnesota yesterday. talking about the global climate change and mitt romney's policies on a bat. we will hear from governor romney. he took a campaign event and made it into an egg acknowledgement of the storm and the victims. james in texas. an independent. caller: good morning. host: caller: good morning i am nearly 70 years old. i saw winterset were colder than normal. warmerwinters that were norma than normal. and i can remember in texas when, i have seen icicles 4 feet long hanging from the rafters and other times where it barely got cold. the earth has a cycle of warming and cooling cycles. one of the problems with sandy to me, they talk about the infrastructure being over, and the subway damage, the worst in 100 years. one of the reasons i think it is aging is because we are paying out so much in pensions and stuff to the union workers like feiu but we cannot afford any other -- money for the infrastructure. how banks that is the topic for the new york times front page. warnings said it could happen here. for n
that bill clinton carried in '96 and that president obama carried. >> if that poll is accurate, romney will win florida for sure, if he's going to carry i-4 by that big a margin. most indications are that he's going to win the state. however, you have to point out, the obama campaign says they're competing in all the battleground states, and they are. the president's one event today is in florida with bill clinton, 10:00 this morning. >> going to be right in the middle of the i-4 corridor. >> right in the middle. they're competing there. they're not giving up. they're using their most precious asset today, one obama visit with bill clinton to go to florida. so they're not giving up, but there's no question romney has an edge there right now. >> you usually have, mika, north florida against south florida and central florida being what makes a difference. the south florida poll out of miami-dade shows the president -- >> largest county in the state, 52%-43%. >> that's not a surprise. i will tell you, this next poll, though, is a surprise. >> all right. let's go to virginia. the latest "w
the storm's progress while former president, bill clinton, does the event solo. early voting, by the way, opened on saturday in florida and with some waiting hours to cast ballots, but are the lines long enough for the democrats to overcome the republicans' absentee voter advantage in the state? think snowbirds. >> early voting started this weekend. i understand you guys blew it out when it came to early voting. whoever is able to get their voters out, you know, they're the ones who are going to win florida. we win florida, we win this election. >> i need you to vote early. i need you to get out and vote. we need to make sure that we win this one. it counts. >> florida congresswoman debbie wassermann schultz chairs the democratic national committee. she is sitting somewhere that is unfamiliar to me because you have sunlight behind you and blue skies. that is not something we have here on the east coast. >> right. >> let me just start with the president's decision. basically, does he regret even flying down to orlando last night? is that the takeaway we should have from him deciding this
. it was restored and then upgraded to a cabinet level position under bill clinton, and then reorganized under homeland security to an ancillary position within the broader framework there. so the problem is when you have competing forms of disaster for our attention, one which is natural, another one which is so-called manmade, you have a kind of moral triage going on in the government and that's problematic. the democrats have got it right. you put fema on its own bottom, allow it to address federal emergencies, and then you deliver resources to states and to local governments from the central organization of the government. yes, you're right. i think julian epstein is absolutely right. the democrats have been inclined to help those who are in need, and this is a challenge to us and a choice for americans here. what kind of government do you want? one that stands behind you when you are in trouble, or the one that kicks you to the curb and pours salt in your already open wounds and tells you you're on your own? that's the kind of choice we're facing here. >> michael makes a really good point
, we've also got to ask the wealthiest americans to go back to tax rates they paid when bill clinton was in office because, as long as i'm president, i will never turn medicare into a voucher to pay for another millionaire's tax cuts. i will never allow the nation to be plunged into another battle over health care reform just so insurance companies can jump back into the driver's seat. and i will never allow politicians in washington to control health care choices that women should be making for themselves. so, wisconsin, we know what change is. we know what the future requires. we don't need a big government agenda or a small government agenda. we need a middle class agenda that rewards hard work and responsibility. we don't need a partisan agenda. we need a common sense agenda that says, when we educate a poor child, we'll a. be better off we need a vision that says we don't just look out for yourself. we look out for one another. we look out for future generations. and we meet those obligations by working together. that's the change we believe in. that's what this election's all.
bill clinton said today. take a listen to this. >> sure. >> and then we went to florida last night, and he got up this morning and called me, he said, i got to go back right now. this storm is getting out of hand, i got to handle it, and i said, mr. president, that is the right call. thank you for doing that. >> michael, if we've learned one thing about this president, it is that he is steadfast and strong in a crisis. it doesn't matter if he's commissioning the killing of bin laden or leading emergency planning at a time like this, does it? >> no, it doesn't, and it's one of the advantages of being president at a time like this. and i think -- >> but, michael, i would -- i'm thinking of the contrast between this president and, of course, the former president who was embarrassing, as you will remember, george w. bush, in relation to hurricane katrina. >> lessons learned. katrina was a lesson throughout the federal government of what not to do, not just at the presidential level, but operationally well below the president. and even for the states, quite frankly. the governor and the
with a real whopper on the automobile industry and former president bill clinton calls him out on it. governor strickland will join us next. stay with us.

. she's lost to us, but he's gotten the most trusted man in america, his name is bill clinton, right now according to recent polling. he has general colin powell who has long been one of the most trusted people in the country, and probably the savviest pol, the mayor of new york. >> the most important point you were in the middle of making, the endorsements would have -- the nonendorsements would have actually been a bigger deal in some ways, and this doesn't take away from anything and the president is able to use powell. but bloomberg staying on the sidelines, it would have been his way of saying -- i don't think bloomberg would have endorsed romney. getting the endorsement is i think a sign that these guys think, number one, they want to be with winners. both of them are very i think careful guys when they throw their endorsement out there. so i think it says something -- >> what would you rather have, "the des moines register" or mayor bloomberg? >> it's not even close. you would want bloomberg. the timing of bloomberg, too. couldn't have come at a better time. >> say question to you
clinton out there campaigning for obama, it can be effective but people expect bill clinton to be campaigning for obama. when it's chris christie suddenly the guy who's the keynote speaker at the republican convention speaking up and vouching for him, that's the kind of thing, people who are wavering back and forth, that registers with them to some extent. >> how are you hanging in personally dealing with the storm? >> i have it a lot better than most people. i used to live in hoboken and the scenes from there, i'm just thinking of the people, my neighbors from hoboken from a few years ago and imagining what they're going through. >> an update on the situation in hoboken, we have new york governor andrew cuomo coming up live in a moment. he never does interviews. i'm really happy he's going to be here. steve kornacki is the co-host of msnbc's "the cycle" at 3:00 p.m. here on msnbc and he writes for salon.com. all right. new york governor andrew cuomo is going to join us. big deal. stay tuned. >>> since the financial industry collapsed and the economic collapse at the end of
or bill clinton in his first term and a larger share of the women class vote as well. so we can congratulate ourselves on that. however, there is no doubt in my mind that it triggered a terrible backlash among the people who were so isolated that they didn't think it was possible with the rest of us were going to elect this blackmail. where did that come from? how did that happen? and certainly we, but thinly veiled racism does the picture with a bone from his nose and african witch doctor then there's all of the other isms whether he is a muslim or trying to turn us into europe and johnson saying he has to learn how to be american. it is the only reason they might oppose or question him. i think that is unfair, too would you think is the watershed moment that this white vote or middle class or working-class voter switched parties and was at the reagan democrats when nixon? when does that happen? >> i think it's nixon to retire right in the beginning of a hard hat right of 1970, and it's a really dramatic moment in my family because we have people on both sides of it. right afte
of them. is bill clinton turning into the party's go-to guy to pick up the slack of what the president obviously can't be out there doing because his attention is needed for what's taking place with sandy recovery? >> sure, if you can't have the president or the vice president, certainly bill clinton, former president clinton is at the top of the list. he is well loved and respected here in ohio and throughout much of the rest of the country, and i think he's doing a wonderful thing for the president and understanding the circumstances of this storm, but, thomas, i think both campaigns have now come down to a get out the vote effort. i don't think people will be much influenced by tv ads and going forward. i think we are in a place -- whichever campaign is most successful in actually getting their people to the polls and that will be the campaign they think will win. >> what do you think is taking place in ohio right now with the fact that mitt romney is not having campaign events and as chuck pointed out he's shifted into more relief-type efforts and people are sending me tweets that
significant votes are expected. the president had been scheduled to go to ohio today with bill clinton. that has been cancelled. joe biden was supposed to be there, but is not going to be able to go to new hampshire today. people are trying to move around their appearances, the president basically had a couple of appearances and is then coming back. the white house is basically monitoring conditions. host: we are talking about two different changes to the schedule. one is the practicality of not going to a certain swing state, but the other has to deal with how candidates are perceived. talk to us about that angle. host: mike holly had an interesting story today. no one wants to be seen as politicizing a storm, but on the other hand they have a job to do next week. no one has talked about suspending their campaign. after the john mccain experience four years ago, no one would actually use that phrase. there are unpredictable ways in which this could affect people. no one wants to be seen as trying to take political of vantage of this. but the effect could include things like not being
for the public right now is please listen to what your state and local officials are saying. >> that left bill clinton flying solo in florida. >> i was supposed to be the warmup man for president obama today. but that storm on the east coast had other ideas. >> governor romney canceled his schedule tonight but today he was still campaigning out of the storm's path in ohio. >> on the eastern coast of our nation, a lot of people are enduring some very difficult times. and our hearts and our prayers go to them. >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. and we are in a special edition today, hurricane sandy growing stronger, reaching what could be historic strength as it heads directly for the northeast. we've got all of our reporters standing by throughout the danger zones with full reports but first, our meteorologist bill karins, live in lower manhattan, bracing for the storm surge tonight. bill, you're down there near battery city and obviously you're looking at tide coming in i guess around 8:30 tonight, is the really first test of just how bad this is going to be? >> yeah. this is
." campaigning for president obama today, former president bill clinton made the political link between hurricane sandy and manmade climate change when he referred to mitt romney's stance on climate change in the recent debate. this is gripping. let's listen. >> he ridiculed the president, ridiculed the president for his efforts to fight global warming in economically beneficial ways. he said, oh, you're going to turn back the seas. in my part of america, we would like it if someone could have done that yesterday. all up and down the east coast there are mayors, many of them republicans, who are being told you got to move these houses back away from the ocean. you got to lift them up. climate change is going to raise the water levels on a permanent basis. if you want your town insured, you have to do this. in the real world, barack obama's policies work better. >> he's unbelievable. anyway, does our extreme weather we're facing right now in the northeast from droughts and wildfires actually across the country, now hurricane sandy, make the case that manmade global warming is not only real but is

in westchester in ohio tonight. then there's former president bill clinton for the fifth player in all of this if you will and look at his schedule today in florida. he goes to lake worth, then ft. myers, then st. petersburg, then tallahassee. he's got five events in total today in florida. and you know the way he talks. talk about a hoarse voice by the end of the day it will be interesting to see where his voice is by 8:00 tonight. in the frenetic final days both candidates are giving positive pitches and warnings as to what will happen if the other guy is voted in. and bolder last night the president argued for another four years. >> after four years as president, you know me by now. you know me. you may not agree with every decision that i've made. you may be frustrated at the pace change. i always remind people that when we did the auto bail out only 10% of the country approved of it. >> and then the president argued romney is a candidate who can't be trusted. >> governor romney has been using all this formidible talent as a salesman to dress up. the very same positives that failed
